     Strikes me that you've been involved with TD's for quite a while now.  How
come you're just now asking?  But, with that set aside, here's a bit of info
straight out of the "MG Midget (Series "TD" and "TF") Workshop Manual (you do
have one, don't you?):


Sump   .........  9 pints (10.8 U.S. pints; 5.1 litres); from Engine No. 14948,
                      (12.6 U.S. pints; 5.96 litres)

So, the 1 1/8 gallons would match up with the Imperial units.

Make sure you know which sump you have, a '52 can have either one.
